    Canned Tuna

    Primal Fuel
    Quick question - whats the best primal option? Obviously brands will vary from country to country, but for those that are regular tuna eaters, what are you looking for?

    I'm in the US - I love the wild planet brand. The are fish are sustainably managed and it tastes amazing to me compared to other brands. It is very expensive though.

    The one I buy only lists tuna and sea salt as the ingredients. Wild Albacore Tuna

    Their sardines have olive oil in them.

    I go by ingredients. No soy, no seed oils, no fillers. I want to see tuna, with or without salt, and then water or acceptable oil. Grocery outlet rotates their stock regularly so it's a constant game of label-checking.

    Starkist and Bumblebee both have a 'low sodium' option which is just tuna and water. So if you can't avoid the Wild Planet (which is probably the best) those two are decent options, no soy or msg from added vegetable broth.

    Trader Joe's has a tuna, water (and maybe salt, I forget) only and it's pretty cheap too.

    I like the Crown Prince natural brand, or at least its the most reasonably priced one at my natural foods store that also has no oils in it. If I remember correctly I usually do the tongol tuna for price.

    Chunk Light Tongol Tuna in Spring Water | Crown Prince Inc.
